For those who don’t know, Pakistan defeated Canada yesterday to win their first match in the T20 World Cup 2024.

Pakistan, who were supposed to chase 107, reached the mark with three wickets down and 15 balls remaining thanks to a solid second-wicket partnership between Mohammad Rizwan and Babar Azam.

With two points from three matches, Pakistan moved up to third place in Group A of the T20 World Cup 2024 after winning by seven wickets, while Canada dropped to fourth.

With just 20 runs scored in the fifth over, left-handed hitter Rizwan (6) and Saim Ayub (6) failed to provide Pakistan with a respectable start.

After that, Babar moved to the middle to join Rizwan, and the two of them bravely led the run pursue.

Before Babar was bowled out by Dilon Heyliger in the fifteenth over, they had put on 63 runs for the second wicket. One boundary and a six let him score 33 runs at run-a-ball.

Fakhar Zaman, who Rizwan temporarily teamed with, only managed four runs before he was out of the game on the second ball of the eighteenth over, needing just three more to win.

After then, Usman Khan hit the game-winning runs for Pakistan by guiding one for a couple of runs towards midwicket.

With an undefeated 53 off of the same number of deliveries, including three boundaries and a six, Mohammad Rizwan continued to lead Pakistan in scoring.
